Specific Types of Solar offered
Peg Energy offers two main categories of solar systems: residential and commercial.
Residential Systems: PEG Energy has helped more than 1,500 South Texas homeowners switch to renewable energy. The company’s clients save on average between 20%-30% from their energy costs by going solar.
The company aims to tailor each system to fit its customers’ goals and needs by using well-known solar panel manufacturers with extensive ranges of solar systems.
Commercial Systems: Peg Energy’s design team consists partly of researchers who aim to provide the best solution possible and work with local businesses to create more sustainable work environments.
The company’s commercial solar projects have created huge value for its customers by allowing them to pair solar panels with an energy storage system to keep their businesses powered in the event of an outage.
Customers of Pep Energy are also able to make use of the following additional services offered by the company:
Roofing Services – Pep Energy is well-versed in all roofing systems and offers end-to-end maintenance and insulation services for all types of roofs.
Battery Storage – Pep Energy offers industry-leading solar-plus-battery solutions that automatically detect outages and power on by itself without interrupting energy.
Mounting – When working on setting up solar panels, the company provides a choice between rail and rail-less mounting options that are custom designed to maximize exposure to the sun and look good as well.
Inverters – Peg Energy recommends Enphase inverters. Each Enphase panel is equipped with its own microinverter to ensure that every panel is continuously producing to its max capacity.
Installation costs and process
The company does not provide its exact pricing online. Upon requesting a free estimate, Peg Energy will allocate one of its solar specialists to reach out and help the customer design a system that fits their needs.
Thereafter, the company will schedule a solar presentation to review the customized design and pricing options. There is also a refer-a-friend benefit available to existing customers that allows them to earn up to $500 for each successful installation completed from their referrals.
